The Cinematheque Reviews: Potiche

When it comes to subtitled films, many people (too many) say they do not want to "read" a movie.  They claim they just want mindless entertainment.  Well I hate to tell them, but Francois Ozon's Potiche, as subtitled as it wants to be, is exactly that - mindless entertainment.  It is fun mindless entertainment, but mindless entertainment nonetheless.  Wonder what all those haters would say to that.  Oh well, whatever they may think, my review of said mindless (but fun) entertainment is up and running over at The Cinematheque.

A less antagonistic moment in Potiche, as old lovers (both on and off screen) are reunited.
